on general motors? this is one of the reasons. this promises to be the first one out in the u.s., the first all electric vehicle, although it does come with that engine that will get 230 miles to the gallon. with the electric charge as well as the engine. be very careful about this. the 230 is a city mpg, not a highway mpg. this benefits from being in the city. it you go 20 miles to work and come home 20 miles, you will not use a drop of gas. if you try to go across the country, it is a very different story, but you will still get good mileage. cd styling on it? this is what gm thinks people actually want. this is a car that has something for everyone. perhaps something for the folks at lifestyle. something for the folks who like the environment. and it is $40,000. will people buy it? i guess that remains to be seen, but it is making a good showing. shepard: and do we know how far this can go on a tank of gas? i have heard reports that it is a relatively small tank. how far can ago -- neil: do we know how far this can go on a tank of gas? >> they have not settled on a gas tank size. somewhe

the bill, and for many of these, it is a question of who is eligible for what. some of us to read the bill, neil, unfortunately, -- fortunately, and i spent the better part of last week doing searches, and it is really unnerving. as i said, the person drafting this bill shows a real tinea ear towards privacy. the government's they do not want to have as their permanent companion as they go through life, and this offers up a real unprecedentedç access to peop's personal information. neil: çyou uncovered something, and that is that if there is such a commissioner, it would coleclipse what is given to the irs, and they could get information from both. >> it is not just this guy. it is his staff, his assistants. it will ultimately be thousands of people that have access to this, and your financial privacy will only be as good as the most mouth consented federal employee, and that frightens main as the most malcontented federal employee, and that frightens me. >> my hope is that this will cause people to step back and start talking to each other again in more civil tons about what needs to

of a senator in new jersey. by "us," i think he was talking to the latino community. what do you make of that? >> i think anybody who is going to cast a vote for or against a nominee based on the color of their skin, that is the wrong way to be making a decision. he and the latino activists can scream all they want. the people they are appealing to and that they are going to try to rev up are not likely republican voters in the first place. i do not think this is going to make a difference. you have people like orrin hatch, who has an excellent relationship with the latino community, he cast a vote against this woman. he has one of the best outreach policies of anyone in the senate. neil: when senator barack obama voted against samuel alito for the court, i do not know if there was an outcry, "it is going to hurt him with a italian-americans." i would hope we are beyond some silliness -- hurt him with italian-americans." >> we ought to be beyond that, too. race and gender do not block people's elevation to hire op- ed's any longer in america. it just does not happen -- elevation to higher ele
